My background in herpesvirus research is extensive. I have over twenty-five years of research experience in molecular virology, antivirals and vaccines. I have published papers characterizing the role of viral proteins in replication, both in vivo and in vitro and led discovery efforts of antiviral inhibitors via state of the art high throughput screening technology. I also have experience in vaccine development and characterization of novel HSV-2 attenuated vaccine candidates.
